Adobe announced a new version of Adobe Flash Media Server today, a product that allows developers to stream Flash content straight to a wide range of devices. Version 4.5, which is being unveiled today, finally enables users to play Flash content on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad without any sort of Flash add-on.

Ben Rolling, vice president of development for AEG Digital Media, said:

When your business is based on delivering live, broadcast-quality video streams for high-profile events to massive audiences across the world, having strong technology backing you is vital

This process is similar to what other third-party tools have done in the past to avoid Apple’s restriction. Skyfire, an alternative browser for iOS, allows certain Flash content to be played. The advantage of Adobe’s implementation is the fact that it won’t require any software to be installed on the device.

Keep in mind, however, that this is not a full implementation of Flash and won’t provide any other technology than plain old streaming video, no matter how well it might function, you will not be able to play flash games or do any similar tasks.
